The male factor accounts for 50% of the equation and the importance of sperm quality cannot be overstated. Male infertility can impact miscarriage rates, as well as the future health of the baby.
The male factor refers specifically to factors related to male fertility, including sperm quality, sperm count, and overall reproductive function. Since men are producing new sperm all the time, we have a significant opportunity to impact sperm quality at our fertility acupuncture clinic in Toronto.
Fertility acupuncture can play a supportive role in improving the chances of IVF success by addressing various factors that can impact fertility and reproductive health. Our qualified acupuncturists specialise in fertility support.
Achieving Optimal Reproductive Health
To ensure the best chance of conception, be it naturally or via IVF, the male reproductive organs need to produce adequate quality sperm in the testes and have a clear path for sperm to travel through the seminal tract. This ensures that enough quality sperm is delivered to the waiting egg.
Low sperm count, poor sperm motility, poor sperm morphology (shape), anti-sperm antibodies, and low testosterone are all imbalances that may be addressed through acupuncture. This treatment is usually applied in combination with nutritional and herbal supplements at our Toronto fertility acupuncture clinic.
One of the most critical areas of influence is acupuncture’s ability to lower one’s perceived stress levels and regulate the nervous system, while cultivating emotional resilience for navigating daily life with greater ease. This, in turn, can result in improved fertility through better health.
Our treatments can help address the following factors, which may be impacting your likelihood of conception.
